Comedian George Lopez Tells Mitt Romney What to Do to Get His Vote: “Admit You’re Latino, Puto”
“Mitt Romney wants the Latino vote. He ain’t going to get it. He ain’t going to get it. And you know why? Because Mitt Romney is a f***ing Latino and he won’t admit it. His father was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. Mitt Romney is a Chicano. But he won’t admit it. ‘I am not. I am Danish. I am French.,” Lopez said.
He continued: “If you want our vote, puto, come out of the closet. Get a hair net and lean back and say ole… His father, his grandfather went to Mexico to create a Mormon colony. That don’t sit good with Mexicans when you want six wives to get twelve kids. F***ing Latinos can have one wife and get twelve kids. Don’t f***ing cheat.”
For those who don’t know, “puto” is a word which translates as traitor.
George Lopez may’ve been having a bit of fun, but he’s right about Romney’s Mexican heritage. NBC previously reported:
If Romney secures the nomination, he would also be the first presidential nominee whose father was born in Mexico.
It’s a little-known fact that there’s a whole branch of Mitt Romney’s family living south of the border, including his second cousin Leighton Romney, and about 40 other relatives descended from religious pioneers who first traveled to Mexico 125 years ago. These days, the Romneys of Mexico enjoy pleasant and productive lives in two remaining settlements: Colonia Juarez and Colonia Dublan, just 175 miles south of the border.
Mitt Romney, of course, doesn’t like it when people mention his Mexican ancestry, but that doesn’t change the fact that it exists. Romney, who is Mormon, has said only that his family left Mexico to escape religious persecution.
